Battlefield: Hardline has been delayed, the game’s developer has revealed.
The first-person shooter will now launch in early 2015, rather than its original planned release date of October.
In the official statement,DICE VP & Group GMKarl Magnus Troedsson said that, as a result of user data and feedback from the recent PC and PlayStation beta,Visceral Games started to think about “other possibilities and ways we could push Hardline innovation further and make the game even better”.
He continued: “The more we thought about these ideas, the more we knew we had to get them into the game you will all be playing. However, there was only one problem. We would need more time. Time that we didn’t have if we decided to move forward with launching in just a couple of months.
“We decided that the right thing to do was to take more time to ensure Hardline is the best, most innovative Battlefield experience we can give to you, our fans.”
It is not yet known whether the game’s autumn beta will be affected by the delay.
Battlefield: Hardline is set to launch on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early 2015.
